Leftover Turkey Curry Soup

This soup is quite possibly the definition of comfort food! It works with either turkey or chicken leftovers and is the perfect thing on a cold wintry day.

Serves 6 people


 

  • 6 tablespoon(s) Unsalted butter
  • 2 Large onions
  • 1.5 liter(s) Chicken stock
  • 1 dash(es) Pepper
  • 150 grams Cooked rice
  • 220 mL Single cream
  • 1 kilo(s) Leftover turkey meat
  • 1 dash(es) Salt
  • 2 tablespoon(s) Curry powder

 

Melt butter in a pot. Add onions and curry powder and cook, covered over low heat, about 25 minutes, stirring occasionally.Add the stock, rice and parsley. Bring soup to the boil, reduce heat and cover. Cook for 15 minutes. Add the turkey leftovers, and cook for another 10-15 minutes.

Cool turkey bits in the stock. Remove the meat and dice it. Reserve the meat.

Pour soup through a sieve, and transfer the solids to a food processor (or use an immersion blender). Add one cup of the cooking liquid (reserving the rest of the liquid) and process until smooth.

Return the pureed soup to the pot and add the single cream. Stir in the reserved stock. Add the reserved diced turkey, and simmer the soup for 15 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper, and serve with a garnish of parsley
